Open discussion 

About Our Experts Tina Morrison, Deputy Director, Division of Applied Mechanics, FDA . Tina has advanced the role of computer modeling and simulation in medical device design and product evaluation during her tenure at FDA. Lauding her work ethic, in 2016 the FDA Office of the Chief Scientist entrusted her with forming and leading an agency-wide working group on modeling and simulation, whose first workshop attracted hundreds of FDA participants. She also headed the drafting of FDA’s breakthrough guidance for modeling: Reporting of Computational Modeling studies in Medical Device Submissions, attracting international recognition. Outside the Agency, Tina has led the development of pathways for enhancing modeling credibility and acceptance. For instance, she was selected by her peers to lead a 3-year effort in developing a verification and validation standard for ASME, which culminated in 2018 with the first-ever set of evaluating procedures for computational modeling of medical devices. The FDA recognized this standard for support medical device evaluation. Because of these efforts, Tina was selected as the 2019 Federal Engineer of the Year for FDA.
